CDI’s North America manufacturing facility has received certification to the AS9100D quality management standard through Lloyd’s Register.
AS9100 is the international quality management system standard for the aviation, space, and defense industry. AS9100 enables manufacturing suppliers with a comprehensive quality system for providing safe and reliable products. The International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) manages the certification program.
A Commitment to Safety and Quality Management
AS9100D certification is another example of CDI’s commitment to safety, sustainability, continuous improvement, and quality management.
“This certification to the international aerospace quality standard signifies CDI’s ongoing commitment to meeting and exceeding increasingly stringent industry requirements for our aerospace-related products, and all the diverse market offerings we manufacture globally,” says David Greathouse, CDI’s Vice President of Operations.
CDI’s manufacturing facilities adhere to the toughest industry standards to ensure quality high-performance polymer products for customers and safe work environments for employees.
Support From Cross-Functional Teams
AS9100 certification also reflects the strength of the CDI team. This rigorous implementation process required the expertise and support of multidiscipline cross-functional teams.
“Thought leaders and experts from across our company helped to drive this certification process and provided the technical know-how and resources necessary to achieve this milestone,” says Jose Gutierrez, CDI’s Director of Quality and Continuous Improvement.
Adding the AS9100 certification strengthens CDI’s competitive position in the aerospace and defense market while standardizing quality processes across the organization.
“While we’ve been active in the aerospace industry for many years, attaining the AS9100 certification will allow CDI to further execute our growth strategy by enlarging our footprint with manufacturers that require the certification,” said Brian Bertelsen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Furthering its dedication to continuous improvement, CDI has plans in place for IoT initiatives and other smart manufacturing enhancements to boost its manufacturing capabilities and global customer deliverability.
